Architects are historically renowned for drawing, so the idea of a charity auction of architects’ drawings as a fundraiser for our participation in the High Court Appeal over the Basin Bridge Board of Inquiry Decision is a natural one. But we’re aiming for it to be a bit bigger than drawings and architects, with an auction which represents the broader arts community of Wellington (and New Zealand).
***The auction catalogue is just out. You can find it here.
So far the following architects, artists, designers, poets, etc. will be contributing drawings, photography, manuscripts of various sorts:
Linda and Bob Burgess
Gina Jones, Accent architects
Margaret Julian, Margaret Julian Architecture
Judi Keith-Brown, Judi Keith-Brown architect limited
Chris Kelly, Architecture Workshop
Douglas lloyd Jenkins
Simon Twose, Simon Twose Architect Ltd
Brenda & Robert Vale
Roger Walker, Walker Architecture & Design
If you’d like to donate a drawing, sculpture, painting etc. to be sold at the auction, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or post it to Architectural Centre, P.O. Box 24-178, Manners Street, Wellington (with a contact email etc.), or you can deliver it to Cranko Architects, 81 Harbour View Road, Northland, Wellington (the office is usually open 8am-6pm), and ask for Kerry. Please include your name and email attached somehow. All donations hugely appreciated.
